This chapter explores Professor Chone Shmeruk’s scholarly activities. His outlook was based on two important factors. First, as a scholar he understood that research on the history of Polish Jewry — that is, on the greatest autonomous Jewish group in the diaspora — could be pursued only through the close cooperation of Jewish and Polish specialists. In this field an ignorance of Polish history and of source materials existing only in Poland can lead to errors and misunderstandings to the same degree as can ignorance of the Jewish past. The second factor was his sentiment towards the country of his youth and of his ancestors. He represented a very specific generation of Israeli patriots with roots in Poland.

Keywords:   Chone Shmeruk, Polish Jewry, Polish history, Jewish diaspora, Jewish history
